Part of all of our work is to bring awareness to these lineages that came before us. We, at Like A Local Tours, are situated within an interwoven network of historical and contemporary relationships with the Lenape people, whom we wish to honor and acknowledge as the original stewards and caretakers of this land, the elders and ancestors who have lived here far before we arrived. The traditional Lenapehoking stretches from upstate New York and the Catskills to the Delaware Bay.
It is within Like A Local Tours’ responsibility as a current steward and actor of this sacred land to disseminate knowledge about Native peoples and the land’s history with them. One of our commitments is to respect diversity and inclusion. To this regard, we are currently also going beyond this land acknowledgement and are seeking to integrate the acknowledgement by building relationships with Lenape and other indigenous communities and initiatives through partnerships, historical recognitions, service and learning efforts to implement Lenape wisdom into our processes and life-way. We are looking forward to supporting initiatives through our business and your support and purchases of our beautiful flowers such as the Redhawk Native Arts Council, the Lenape Center and the Manahatta Fund.
